Good Sense


Perfect good sense shuns all extremity, content to couple wisdom with sobriety
If poverty is the mother of crimes, want of good sense is the father
Between good sense and good taste there is the difference between cause and effect


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
